General Dentists in Owings Mills

Nothing makes a fantastic impression quite like a shining, healthy smile. If you’re ready to achieve optimal dental health, it may be time to see a general dentist in Owings Mills.

General Dentist: What Is His or Her Role?

A general dentist is a skilled dental professional who provides a host of dental services to adults and children. Sometimes called a family dentist, this dentist is responsible for the treatment and management of most dental health issues, including tooth decay and gum disease. Your family dentist is usually the person you visit most frequently for your oral health needs.

What Services Do General Dentists Offer?

The goal of general dentistry services is to maintain the health and function of patients’ natural teeth. General dentists provide cleanings, X-rays, oral cancer screenings, and other services that keep your teeth and gums disease-free. You can also visit a general dental office if you’re experiencing oral discomfort or other problems.

General Dental Services

At our modern dentist general practice, we offer comprehensive dental care in a welcoming atmosphere. The following is a list of the general dentistry services we currently offer to patients.

  • Crowns
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Dental Implants
  • Dental Reconstruction
  • Dental Sealants
  • Dentures
  • Fillings and Restorations
  • Oral Cancer Screenings
  • Root Canal Therapy
  • Tooth Extractions

How Frequently Should I Visit a General Dentist Near Me?

If you’ve received a clean bill of dental health from your dentist, you may only need to schedule a checkup every six months. However, if your dentist detects a problem, you may require a follow-up visit to resolve your symptoms.

How Much Will It Cost to See a General Dentist?

The cost of your initial appointment will depend on what treatments are necessary to maintain your dental health. Please call us if you have questions regarding payment or insurance coverage.

Why Is Dental Health Important?

Maintaining the health of your gums and teeth is beneficial for your whole body. Excellent dental health protects you against tooth loss, infection, and chronic inflammation caused by gum disease. Plus, clean and healthy teeth enhance your appearance, giving you a confident smile. Let us help you attain a glowing smile – call us today to set up an appointment.

How Long Does a Dental Cleaning Take?

Most routine dental cleanings at a general family dentistry practice last approximately 30-60 minutes. If your teeth and gums are affected by extensive decay or disease, your cleaning may take longer.

How to Prepare for Your Dental Appointment

Some people experience stress or even fear when visiting the dentist. Preparing for your appointment ahead of time can sometimes ease your anxiety. To make the paperwork process easier, gather copies of your insurance card, medical history, and prescriptions. Arriving a few minutes before your scheduled time is also a good way to ease anxiety.

What Happens When You Don’t See a Dentist?

When you don’t receive regular dental cleanings and examinations, tooth decay and gum disease can progress without you knowing. These conditions can become expensive and uncomfortable to treat during the later stages, so an early diagnosis is important. In fact, regular dental visits can save you hundreds of dollars on dental care over time. Call our office today to book an appointment with one of our experienced dentists.
